Online Communities and the Politics of DDoS


Published 2007


Like meetings in public spaces, online communities often are faced with the problem of policing themselves against people who only wish to disrupt things. This is even worse on the Internet, where bandwidth is cheap, botnets are easy to create, anonymity trumps fear of repercussions, and many people think denial of service attacks are completely legitimate ways to show off the size of one's e-penis. This talk will cover the problem of DDoSes to online communities: from why it's so common (technologically speaking), to the blame-the-victim mentality that perpetuates the problem (and how to fight it, both on a technical and social level).

Seth stopped liking writing self-promoting blurbs a long time ago. In fact, he may never have liked it to begin with. He acknowledges that there's already far too much information about him on the interblag, and encourages people to do their own research if they're interested.
